George Roy Hill dead at 81
THE STING, one of my favorites of all time. RIP, Mr. Hill.
Every year it seems like one famous showbiz person dies between Christmas Day and New Years Day. I've enjoyed his films over the years and I hope he RIP.
Well, nuts. RIP
The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Slap Shot are three of my all-time faves. He'll be missed.
Great filmmaker, one who will be missed. RIP, Mr. Hill.
The Sting is one of my favs of all time!! (And needs a decent DVD badly!!)
RIP Mr Hill. You will be missed.
Not a big Sting fan, but I loved Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.
I am not sure if the featurette made it to the dvd uncensored, but his voice over on 25th BCSK LD is hilarious. I almost fell out of my chair when he called RR a "hardnose mick'. He ends it by saying, "if people dont like the movie, I'll go out of my F****** head."
Bye George and thanks very much
Hollywood needs more honest assholes like you
(what a crappy week, 1st strummer now GRH....whose #3?)
Thanks to Mr. Hill for providing us with some great entertainment.
Surprised nobody's mentioned his brilliant adaptation of The World According to Garp, a difficult work to bring to the screen. A shame to see him go; wish he had done more work.
He was a wonderful film director. I remember that 'I'll go out of my f***n head' comment at the end of the Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid doc. My condolences to his family.
R.I.P George Roy Hill. Thanks for all the great movies.
Now he's above the raindrops, I'm sure.
And to answer Grant B's question, George Roy Hill is actually number 3 himself. Number 2 was photographer/music video director Herb Ritts, who died yesterday of complications from pneumonia.
